The Venture

The Venture, Chivas Regal’s global search to find and support the most promising aspiring social entrepreneurs who want to succeed whilst making a positive impact on the lives of others within their host communities, is calling for entries in Nigeria.

The Venture is a search for entrepreneurial thinkers interested in business for good, that is, social entrepreneurs with innovative and sustainable business models. With over $1 million in funding and resources, The Venture enables social entrepreneurs from around the world to realize their potential and gain exposure for their business, with a view to improving their profits and by extension their corporate social responsibilities for their host communities.

In partnership with Enterprise Development Centre, entries are now open to social enterprises from across Nigeria and across all fields. This is the initial of three main stages of competition with a shortlist of 15 expected to make it to the Semifinal Boot-Camp after an open assessment process with clear criteria. A final cut down to 5 will make it to the Finals with a winner expected to emerge in December 2016.


Entrepreneurs from all fields are encouraged to participate in the competition, present innovative solutions and follow all through to the end of the contest.
